Continuing to honor Bebe Moore Minority Mental Health Month this is a REWIND episode!

This was our conversation last year just before World Mental Health Day:

We had a chance for another important talk with Natasha Pierre, Executive Director of NAMI Hillsborough (Tampa). NAMI is the National Alliance on Mental Illness, the largest grassroots organization focusing on mental health, mental illness and advocacy.

She talks about the importance of protecting our peace, acknowledging our feelings during this tough time (pandemic, social unrest, job loss) and being unapologetic about meeting our own needs and self-care.
